1998 Mazda 323 Protege - constantly overheating, even after fairly short runs (10 minutes). Coolant overflow bottle turns from green to dark grey each trip and almost "explodes".


Possible cause ;
1. Water pump
2. Thermostat
3. Bad head gasket.
4. Low coolant level.
Try to replace thermostat first , this way you illuminate thermostat and coolant level , you'll have to ad coolant after replacement and purge system.

2003 Protege 5 overheating on long runs (> 20 min). Overheated today while driving at interstate speeds for > 15 min. Lost the coolant. Refilled with coolant. Return drive maintained normal engine...


Sounds like you have coolant leak if you are loosing coolant or a bad thermostat. I would replace the thermostat, they run about $10. The other fan is an aux fan and will only run when the a/c unit is on.

2001 Mazda Protege cooling fan or thermostat


I am realizing that the cooling fan in this car is very important. It has two in case you didn't notice. The driver side fan motor is bad in mine and the only result is poor air conditioner performance in stop and go traffic. It's fine at high speeds. I would think the thermostat is likely the culprit in your case, but if the fans are not working at all, you should get those replaced. The motors may be bad in both, which could definitely cause overheating. I've been researching prices and you should be able to get the parts for less than $100 each and installation is just a couple of bolts on each assembly.
